Sunday 29 November 2015: The museum is now closed to the public while we do all our cleaning, maintenance and housekeeping. We look forward to welcoming you back when we re-open in February 2016

Welcome to the British Schools Museum

Home of the educational revolution.


There is literally no other museum like the British Schools Museum in Hitchin. The 1837 Monitorial Schoolroom is the only one of its kind left in the world! Then there are our 3 other historic classrooms, the Headmaster's House and our wonderful displays and exhibitions based upon the extraordinary collection of 47,000 objects!

In our truly interactive museum you can be sure that
200 years of heritage will add up to hours of fun for all!
